          Picture perfect spot in peaceful Cape Breton!

          5 of 5
          "Maggie's" is truly a unique home. We booked based on the lovely pictures online, but the actual place FAR exceeds what you see on screen. If you want real Cape Breton heritage, look no further. The house itself is full of character, while also fully outfitted with all the contemporary comforts you'd need (fast wifi, great washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc.) Each bedroom has its own sweet style, and the upstairs loft is great for late night lounging. The kitchen is wonderful for cooking in, although we spent most of our time using the BBQ.... We didn't know the lay of the land before arriving in Cape Breton, so we were happy to discover that Skirdu (where Maggie's is) is the less developed side of the Cabot Trail - fewer tourists, more of a local feel. We got to know some fishermen at the Little River docks (and enjoyed the local beach there), hiked local trails and went swimming in nearby ponds. Provisions are best picked up in Baddeck (or Ingonish), which are a bit of a drive, but Wreck Cove General Store - a quick jaunt up the road - often sufficed. Uli and Cathy (Cathy is a born and bred CB'er!) were amazing, excellent, exceedingly warm hosts. They went above and beyond in welcoming us to the island. An apple pie awaited us when we arrived, and Uli thoughtful arranged for some lobster since the season was ending just as we started our stay. He also introduced my husband and baby to some long hikes behind the house and was always available on the rare occasion when we needed to be in touch. We used Maggie's as a home base for exploring the Cabot Trail and Cape North during our three week stay, and were always so happy to return "home" each night. I'll never forget driving up to the house that first day as the sun started to set - it was like a picture in a children's book. Don't miss: the short hike to "the gill", Little River beach, Wreck Cove General Store, the Dancing Moose, the Clucking Hen, and further away - Warren Lake, the Coastal Trail, Cabot Landing beach, and all of Cape North....

          Outstanding Cottage in Beautiful Location

          5 of 5
          I have found that 5 stars are too often given so that the rating starts to lose its meaning. This truly is a 5 star property. It is beautifully designed and built with pine- planked inside walls that lend such charm and interest. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, a rarity and yet so helpful with a larger family or couples traveling together. There's plenty of space for privacy and also for interaction. The furniture is very nice and actually is the King bed (didn't try the others.) We ate all breakfasts and dinners there so really appreciated the high-end appliances (especially the Jenn-Aire duel fuel stove/oven) and the gas grill. And then there's the magnificent view from the house, from the porch, and from the firepit with chairs area right by the water. And the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. And then there's the porch. since the photos on this site were taken, beautiful, high quality couch, chairs and tables are now present...we practically lived on that porch. This truly is one listing that is even better then its photos and write-up. As for the practical matters, Tonia was so easy to work with and very responsive. She provides lots of information about what to do, best places to eat, shop, etc. ahead of time and kindly and quickly answered some additional questions we thought of. The house was immaculate and the linens were of excellent quality. Nothing was missing. And our refundable security deposit check was waiting for us when we got home.

          Very nice house with a great view

          5 of 5
          My wife and I enjoyed the house for a week in July 2014. House is clean and the view is very nice. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. House includes everything you need for the stay. Cape Breton was beautiful. Be prepared for a lot of driving to sites and activities. The only negatives about the house were the driveway is very rough gravel. Make sure you have a car that is high off the ground. In addition, the beach is right there by the house but difficult to access. There is a very steep drop off and you need to walk through tall grass to get there. Overall loved the house and would stay again.
